美国于181518日取得纽奥良战争 (Battle of New Orleans) 的胜利

你知道许多人、尤其是在南方,为什么会在每年的18日大肆庆祝吗?在1815年的这一天,安德鲁杰克森 (Andrew Jackson) 少将率领一支人数与配备都十分缺乏的军队、成功击败8千名英国士兵,这就是所谓的纽奥良战争。杰克森成为战争英雄 (后来还成为第七任的美国总统) 。所以,在十九世纪时,每年的18日,许多人都会举办派对,并且跳舞庆祝这场胜利的周年纪念。

Every January 8, during the 19th century, many people held parties and dances to celebrate the anniversary of the great victory.
